The Government of India has made it compulsory for motor vehicles to have a FASTag fixed on it. If you have purchased a FASTag for your vehicle, you need to maintain a minimum balance in your FASTag account. In case you do not ensure a threshold balance, your FASTag will not be activated. The minimum balance amount in a FASTag is usually Rs 100, however, this may vary depending on the bank from which you got the FASTag. You can recharge your FASTag through debit card, credit card, Internet banking, UPI, etc. If you need any assistance to complete the recharge process, then you should contact the bank’s customer service support from which the FASTag has been purchased.
You will not be able to cross the toll plaza if your FASTag does not have enough balance. You can make a recharge of up to Rs 1 lakh for your FASTag. Out of 22 banks currently providing FASTag, Karur Vysya Bank (KVB) is one of the major providers of it. If you already have a KVB FASTag and want to add balance in it then you can do it online through the official portal of this bank. For KVB FASTag recharge online, follow these steps:
